I just aquired a nicely used original Parker serial # 134097 built in 1905 with 30 inch barrels in 12ga. Vulcan f/m is it rare?

To my knowledge the 30" barrel option only appeared in just one brochure and that was an early brochure that, I believe, pre-dated the Steel Shot Specials. I find it somewhat ironic that the factory would pair a 30" M/F set of barrels to the SSS given the fact that the factory cautioned against shooting steel through a Full choke.

Thatís the point I was ineptly trying to make. The 30 inch barrels were offered as stand alone guns, not just added to SSS guns. The catalog says they were 3 inch chambers.
But very few have been seen.

The 30" barrels were not offered as a gun.There was one run of 25 barrel sets that were shipped just before the Japanese closed the plant.Those barrels were shipped without serial numbers.The serial number was added when the barrels were fitted to an existing gun to match the number of the gun.The barrels could be added to any 12ga repro or any 11/2 frame 12ga.gun for that matter.Parker repro planned to add the 30" gun to the line,but were cut off by the plant closing.
